lysdr - simple software-defined radio

Requirements: gtk, fftw3 and jack, waf to build

1. Configure with "./waf configure"
2. Build with "./waf build"
3. Run with "./build/lysdr"

On startup, lysdr will connect its output to the first two jack physical
output ports if you pass "--co"
You will need to connect some sort of IQ source to the inputs - this can
be either a real live soundcard with some SDR hardware, or a prerecorded
IQ file.  To automatically connect the first two physical input ports on
startup, pass "--ci" on the command line.

Set the displayed centre frequency with  --freq <frequency>
For the Kanga Finningley with the stock local oscillator crystal, the
standard centre frequency is:
80m  =  3750000

For the Softrock v6.2 Lite boards, the standard centre frequencies are:
160m =  1844250
80m  =  3528000
40m  =  7056000
30m  = 10125000
20m  = 14075000
15m  = 21045000 

These options may change in a future build.

Example:
## don't connect anything
$ ./build/lysdr

## connect both input and output to lysdr
$ ./build/lysdr --ci --co 

When using lysdr along with an digimodes program such as fldigi, it's
useful for both programs to know what frequency lysdr is tuned to.
To automate this, you can specify a tuning hook script with the
--tuning-hook option. When lysdr is tuned to a new frequency, it runs
the hook script with the following environment variables set:

  LYSDR_FREQ      The frequency lysdr is tuned to, in integer Hz
  LYSDR_MODE      "LSB" or "USB"
  LYSDR_CENTRE    The SDR centre frequency, in integer Hz
  LYSDR_OFFSET    lysdr's local oscillator frequency, in integer Hz

This hook script will update fldigi's idea of the frequency when lysdr
is retuned:

  #!/bin/sh
  xmlrpc localhost:7362 rig.set_frequency d/$LYSDR_FREQ >/dev/null 2>&1


Drag the slider to tune the radio.  The number below the slider is the
frequency offset in Hz from the SDR centre (local oscillator) frequency.
Right-drag for bandspread tuning (1Hz steps).

Drag the sides of the yellow filter bar to adjust the bandpass filter upper and
lower edges.

There are dropdowns to select locked, fast and slow AGC, wide and narrow filtering
and USB/LSB demodulation.  There's also a not-very-good S meter.
